A series of muggings by teenagers in the west 90’s has led police to increase their patrols of the area. The Trevor Day School on 88th and Central Park West recently sent out an email warning students to be careful walking around the area as some students have been mugged, according to ABC News. Among other precautions, they’re advising students to keep their cell phones out of view until they’re in a safe spot.
The muggers are apparently teenagers around 10 to 15 years old. In some incidents, the students were punched or shoved.
